    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Looking For Some New Clothes? Get Inspired With Autumn

    [caption id="attachment_3483" align="alignleft" width="260" caption="Great Autumn Clothes For Men"]end[/caption]


    We don't normally do stories on fashion advice here at the blog, but this article from Cleveland is great if you're looking for some classic and warm clothes for the fall. When I think of fall clothes, I always think of one word: layers. Layering a solid colored v-neck sweater over a plaid shirt will keep you looking sophisticated, warm and gives you the option to change your look at anytime during the day. Here are some fashion tips for men courtesy of Cleveland:

    Men's fashion trends this season are both rugged and refined, says Eric Jennings, vice president and men's fashion director for Saks Fifth Avenue.

    Jennings refers to the two distinct looks as "modern mod" and "backwoods battalion."

    Modern mod harks back to the British Invasion of the 1960s, he says, with dapper styles and neutral colors.

    "There's a strong return this fall to authentic heritage fabrics and styles from the U.K.," Jennings says.

    Men will also find an abundance of outdoorsy looks in stores, such as weathered boots, fur-trimmed outerwear, Nordic motifs and clothing in earthy shades of brown, green and blue.


    Prominent plaids

    Don't be afraid of a powerful pattern. Embrace the trend with a plaid sport coat or -- for the timid -- a crisp plaid shirt.

    Heathered sweaters

    The amount of contrast in the colors changes the vibe. Strong contrast appears rugged, while minimal (as in the soft gray cashmere sweater below) looks dressy.

    Monk-strap shoes

    This style is both sophisticated and simple. No laces to tie, but the buckle gives the perfect touch of elegance.


    The quick-fastening closures were originally designed for the British Royal Navy before World War I. You'll spot them on coats and sweaters everywhere this fall.
